Good to grant!

Sometimes it helps to have knowledge of life before Google. When attempting to navigate to the Managed VCL pages at http://www.managedvcl.com, I discovered that they were not working properly and I was immediately prompted by some sort of error message in obvious Russian. Not being fluent in that language, I thought I would run it thru the translator at Google... but they don't have a translation option for Russian. Then I remembered my "before Google" days with altavista. So after navigating to http://babelfish.altavista.com I was able to enter the url, locate the appropriate translation option and pressed the go button.

I guess not everything translates well. What I received was the following message:

Good to grant!

The site of the client of hosting- provider HostZilla.ru is temporarily blocked.

Obviously the site is being blocked...the question is for how long and for why? And why is that Google doesn't have a Russian language translator?
